1:42 am
and together they strangled her to death. this is what nightmares are made of, of what these two -- i'll use the term loosely -- people did. >> after the murder, the teens went to lunch but then came back to set the body on fire to cover up their tracks. the teens were going after guns, jewelry and anything else they could sell for cash. just a couple of hours ago, cbs 5 meteorologist paul deanno gave everyone in our newsroom a heads-up. the forecast for hurricane sandy has changed. but not for the better. this is the scene today in florida. paul give us a look at what's turning into a monster storm. >> look at the size of this thing, stretching from central florida all the way up to north carolina. but it's also becoming a monster because of where it's heading, new york city, philadelphia, washington, d.c., in the path of hurricane sandy. here's video to show you.
1:43 am
crews worked on street poles that loosened after all the swaying for a couple days of heavy winds and strong rains. the beach was actually closed off for swimming. that's because crashing waves swept much of the sand right into the ocean. >> we've lost maybe 20, 30 feet of beach in the last couple of days. >> it's as dangerous as the ocean gets. >> and double red flags mean stay off the beech. in new york city bulldozers spent the day building up sand dunes. why all the fear? because of what sandy did in the bahamas, killed more than two dozen people across the caribbean. most by falling trees or collapsed buildings. the islands are also recovering from power outages. here's what sandy looked like from space. this picture taken from the international space station. back to my weather maps. let me show you where sandy is forecast to go. up the eastern seaboard. watch the forecast cone move

right into new jersey, delaware, pennsylvania, new york city, making landfall as a hurricane in the very heavily populated area. as for what we can expect, up to a foot of rainfall, widespread power outages and also widespread beach erosion. our forecast back here in the bay area, looking much quieter. that's a good thing. coming up in just a few minutes. by the way, that hurricane being felt on the campaign trail. governor romney and joe biden each cancelling weekend events in virginia beach. and there's speculation that it could affect turnout specifically in virginia and north carolina if there's a lot of storm damage. governor jerry brown's latest push to get prop 30 passed is drawing attention but not the kind he attended. he spoke at an naacp convention in san mateo. >> these shadowy figures, they say they're from arizona. but i don't know where these people are from, because
1:45 am
they're hiding. they're wearing masks, because they don't want people to see who the hell they are. well, the city council is going to court to unmask these people. >> now, brown later said he didn't necessarily mean to refer to the kkk. he just wants to expose the arizona organization that donated $11 million to defeat his tax initiative. the latest poll says prop 30 is falling short of the 50% needed to pass. people facing forecast don't often talk about it, but now you can find out if your neighbors are in danger of losing their house. linda yee shows us that information is only a click away. >> let's see what we can find here. >> reporter: real estate agent knight is showing a buyer an oakland home now in foreclosure. but buyers can now find out about these distressed deals

even before the bank takes the home. the site's new feature gives detailed information. for example, this concord homeowner has been served a notice of default but the home is not yet on the market. >> to have that put in a public place for everyone to see, it's so humiliating and so embarrassing. >> reporter: the site doesn't give out owner names but there are pictures of the homes and the address. >> this is like anybody, your neighbor can see that. your personal financial situation, all over the papers. oh, i cringe. >> reporter: the blue homes indicate the ones a bargain hunter can pounce on, offer the owner a deal before the bank takes it. home buyer beth hood isn't sold on that idea. >> it almost seems predatory in a way. >> reporter: but the site says they're doing a free service for a housing market with low inventory, which drives prices up. says all the information on homes about to
1:47 am
be foreclosured is a matter of public record. all they're trying to do is make that information accessible to the average buyer. knight argues that zillow is doing a disservice. the site that tells how much homes are worth is now blabbing that your neighbor can't afford it and could soon lose it. this could result in surface-disturbing activities on your land. >> california's new gold rush. but there's a catch. the letters going out to homeowners telling them they don't open what they think they do. you see warning signs everywhere. why you're about to see one on your couch. plus, why it's a bad idea to mix tea and milk. but the best rest event ends sunday at sleep train. ♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪

after liquid gold. prospectors want to tap int4 billion barrel there's a new gold rush in california. only this time, they're after liquid gold. prospectors want to tap into 14 billion barrels of unexplored oil reserves. it lies deep under a stretch of land called the monterey shale. it starts at the southern end of the bay area and runs almost down to l.a. and our cbs 55 allen martin explains homeowners are finding out they don't own what they think they do. >> reporter: it's jay's favorite pass time. quail hunting. that's why he bought 1400 acres of land.
1:50 am
>> they're a surface owner. >> reporter: but a letter has him worried. >> it's our understanding that you are the surface owner of all or a portion of the land, including a parcel on our oil and gas lease. >> reporter: it's the federal bureau of land management, telling him his private land is about to be leased off to an oil company. he never dreamed it could go up right next to his house. >> if there is oil in, say, the next section over and they need to drill for it, so be it. i just wish they wouldn't do it or even attempt to do it around my house. >> reporter: it's actually a common situation. you may own the surface rights to your property but you may not own what's underneath, the mineral rights. many of those belong to uncle some. >> we are required to put those up for lease periodically. >> reporter: the blm's rick cooper says his agent has a mandate to auction off mineral rights whenever there's an
1:51 am
interest. and right now there's a lot. the auction is coming up in december. and 82% of those 17,000 acres of mineral rights are on private land. >> we asked the lessee if they would contact a private landowner and begin to have hopefully a cooperative relationship with the landowner. jovment jacobson says he's already talked to the blm and got some assurances. >> as a homeowner, you do have rights. they can't just come in and destroy the place. >> reporter: but environmentalists say that's exactly what could happen, because drilling for oil in the area around jacobson's ranch would require a technique called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. it works by injecting water laced with chemicals and has caused groundwater contamination in other parts of the country. but the blm says in
1:52 am
california... >> 30% of the wells in california that are drilled have hydraulic fracturing, and at this point, i'm not aware of any issues associated with hydraulic fracturing. >> they have not disclosed the dangers to the environments and to the public of this activity, before putting these lands up for sale. >> reporter: she filed a 60-day intent to sue to stop the auction. >> these beautiful areas that people use for getting out in nature are at great risk of being transformed overnight from the shale oil rush. >> reporter: jacobson says he's not too worried about the fracking. >> they know they'll get sued if they screw up somebody's well water. >> reporter: but just in case, he has a backup plan. when the auction comes up, he says he might just bid on his own mineral rights and buy them back. so if there is contamination
1:53 am
and you don't own your mineral rights, who is responsible? well, it all depends on the contract that you write up with the oil company. you're not going to get royalties. that's a given. but you still have to make sure you're not stuck with the cleanup, bottom line. >> this fracking is going on all over the country. >> it is. really big back east. it's spreading everywhere, because that's where the oil is. >> thank you. well, it's not the kind of news that apple is used to hearing. for the first time in three months, its stock dropped below $600 a share. shares fell as low as $591 today but recovered slightly to close at 604. apple isn't having any problem selling the new ipad mini. the white version sold out in 20 minutes today, preorders started at midnight. shipping has now been pushed back another two weeks.

1:55 am
that's the 40-year-old requirement of tb117 but it only applies to the foam inside the furniture, which is why manufacturers douse it with chemicals. he demonstrates, in an actual fire, it's the fabric that catches first, and once it's ignited, he says the chemicals have little effect except to produce toxic smoke. because the flame retardants migrate and settle in dust, studies have found high levels of the toxic chemicals in toddlers, breast milk. state senator mark leno is relieved a revised flammability standard is finally in the works. tom says he's also relieved. >> if my customers are concerned, i'm concerned. >> reporter: the revision to california's flammability standard is expected by next summer. it would increase fire safety without the chemical flame retardants. in the meantime, the old standard still applies, which
1:56 am
means most couches in california will continue to come with chemically treated foam and a warning. >> here's something you might not have known. drinking tea comes with healthy benefits but that's only if you drink it pure. a study in the heart journal says adding extras like milk or sugar in your tea can make the benefits literally evaporate. when combining the antioxidants in the tea with the protein in the milk, it neutralizes anything good. we broke the news to the owner of a tea shop in the bay area. she says he's not surprised. >> we've been knowing this for a long time already, not to put sugar and milk into your tea. >> next the water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. it can even help your heart. coming up in weather, find out if you're going to want a hot coffee or an iced coffee. here's a live look at the moon.
